Genre: Rock / Disco House / Vintage PsychedelicShow: 8:30PM (Doors: 7:30PM)Tickets: $20/$22Ages: 21+ BoomBox A little house, a little blues, a little funk, a little rock, and a whole lot of soul blast through BoomBox.Since first emerging in 2004, founder, songwriter,producer, and multi-instrumentalist Zion Rock Godchaux has been quietly seasoning this simmering recipe to perfection. However, it reaches a boiling point on his forthcoming 2018 album, Western Voodoo [Heart of Gold Records].At the same time, the Muscle Shoals, AL native stays true to what attracted countless fans in the first place.“I remain open to anything you would hear coming out of a boombox,” he explains. “There are a lot of different vibes and angles, but it still adheres to a universal rhythm. This new record is the most musical and varied, yet it’s tightly wound in respect to that syncopation. There are only a few rules. It should be heavy groove. It should make you want to move. Overall, I’ve further developed the sound people are used to.”Following up 2016’s fan favorite Bits & Pieces, the artist found himself at something of a crossroads. Longtime collaborator Russ Randolph amicably parted ways with the band at the end of the year. For the first time, Godchaux would solely produce the bulk of a BoomBox record by himself inside of his new studio, while DJ Harry joined on tour in January 2017. Another first, he even performed live bass on the album, opening up the creative palette dramatically.“I’ve learned more about engineering and the technical aspects of recording. It’s been a time of soul searching. I can follow any Ideas that I want to. So there’s a lot more organic instrumentation. I’m just trying to develop more sonic real.” Appropriately, he dubs the sound of Western Voodoo, “Dirty Disco Blues.” Within that realm, Godchaux fuses a funky strut with electronic energy and danceable swagger powerful enough to cast a spell of its own.“You hear about different forms of magic around the world,” he goes on. “The West, in general, has its own voodoo influenced by the blues. That’s what shaped me as a musician growing up in this country. It’s hard to put in the words, but you know it when you hear it.”You hear it in everything that BoomBox has done thus far. Over the course of four albums, the group has become a streaming favorite with numerous tracks cracking a million plays on Spotify. Moreover, they’ve made audiences groove everywhere from Electric Forest and Hangout Music Festival to High Sierra Music Festival. To welcome DJ Harry into the fold, they performed 75 shows in 2017, with that number expected to grow in 2018.“Harry picked up everything in a really short amount of time,” he explains. “The parties are just as hot, if not hotter. The music is getting tighter. He stepped in and kept the plane in the air.”In the end, the new music kicks off the brightest and boldest chapter yet for Godchaux. “Our best side is somewhat medicinal,” he leaves off. “All of the rhythms, melodies, and frequencies add up to these healing properties. I hope people feel rejuvenated and re-focused on some level when they hear us. That’s Western Voodoo.” web: www.thisisboombox.comvid: https://youtu.be/RpWsx8f_8Wk

Description:
This seminar offers an in-depth examination of dilemmas that DRC-certified mediators face in their mediation practices and provides guidance for how to successfully meet these challenges. Coffee and light snacks provided.  3 hours Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit, pending NC State Bar approval / 2 hours Continuing Mediator Education (CME) credit, approved by the NC Dispute Resolution Commission Every active MSC and FFS mediator certified by the North Carolina Dispute Resolution Commission (DRC) must annually complete 2 hours of continuing mediator education (CME) certified by the DRC. As this credit is not permitted to roll over to subsequent years, this course is approved by the DRC for only two hours of CME for FY 2018-19. Review the DRC rules here. SCHEDULE 9:00 a.m. – 9:45 a.m.Presenter: Gary Cash I. Mediators Called on the Carpet Complaints about mediator conduct are heard by the Dispute Resolution Commission. Former DRC Chair Gary Cash will review both the most common and the most troubling types of complaints and explain what happens after complaints are lodged with the DRC. He will also offer practical advice about how mediators might avoid complaints, censure and de-certification.  II. Staying Within the Lines: No Professional Advice from Mediators Mediators are prohibited from giving legal or other professional advice during mediation. How does a mediator who is guiding parties in evaluation of their dispute avoid crossing the line into giving advice? How does a mediator effectively help the parties assess their case and their settlement options without violating this standard of conduct?  III. Down to Brass Tacks: Ethical Issues for Mediator’s Proposals When a case should settle but is near impasse at mediation, parties may ask for a “mediator’s proposal,” that is, the mediator’s unbiased opinion of what both parties would likely accept to settle the case. What ethical issues can arise in these situations under the mediator’s standards of conduct? What steps should a mediator take to maintain impartiality and protect the mediation process? 10:00 a.m.–10:45 a.m. Presenter: Frank Goldsmith IV. Case Evaluation Without Imposing Mediator’s Opinions: Helping Parties Reach Informed and Thoughtful Decisions Mediators are also prohibited from imposing their opinions about the merits of the dispute or the acceptability of settlement options. Many mediators rely upon their skills and experience to guide the parties to resolution, and to help parties recognize motivating factors beyond the merits of the dispute. But how does a mediator make sure they are not imposing their opinions? And how far should a mediator go to uncover hidden motivators and unspoken constraints so that good decisions can be made about settlement? V. Conflicts of Interest: Traps for the Unwary Mediators cannot allow personal interests to interfere with their obligation to impartially serve the parties to a dispute. What does this mean when a mediator is acquainted with parties and/or counsel in a case? What disclosures and/or consents should be obtained when asked to mediate a case involving: one's former clients, one's former law partners, former law firm, former colleagues on the bench? And what must a mediator do when parties are represented by attorneys in a law firm where the mediator has a spouse or other relative, or by counsel who are close friends of the mediator? How should mediators understand conflicts of interest? When can disclosure and consent be utilized to avoid concerns which might lead to questions about the mediator's impartiality? VI. The Whole Spiel: The Ten Commandments of Mediator Openings Court rules for mediation programs require that mediators begin conferences with a long litany of definitions and explanations. What are these mandatory items and why should even the most seasoned mediators remember to discuss each one, every time? What consequences can follow from skipping these mandatory mentions? 11:00 a.m. –11:45 a.m.Presenter: Sharon Tracey Barrett VII. Mastering Yourself: Mediator Impartiality in Tough Cases Mediators must remain impartial throughout the course of mediation, which can be a lengthy and arduous process. How does a mediator maintain this neutral role in high conflict situations? What strategies can help mediators who must deal with parties who are experiencing high anxiety, as well as difficult or obnoxious people? What tips will help the mediator remain impartial even in cases where the mediator feels more empathetic to one side, such as where equities seem to favor one side significantly more than another? VIII. Winking and Nodding: Confidentiality Within the Mediation Process What are the things a mediator must keep confidential during mediation? And how can a mediator deal with difficult questions about something that cannot be revealed? IX. “Look Ma! No Hands!” Keeping Control of the Conference Mediators have both the authority and the duty to control the mediated settlement conference, according to program rules. What does this mean when a mediator confronts specific problems, and how should a mediator respond when faced with: unresponsive parties or lawyers, scheduling challenges, attendance issues, disruptive conduct at mediation and parties employing unfair, hardball negotiating tactics? 11:45 a.m.– 12:30 p.m.Panel Discussion PRESENTERS Gary Cash Gary Cash served as a North Carolina District Court Judge in Asheville, NC for twenty-five years until his retirement on December 31, 2010, and was the District’s Chief Judge for the eight years before he stepped down from the bench.

Have you ever wanted to create an abstract painting but weren’t sure how to start? If so, fluid art—also called [acrylic] pour painting, flow art, liquid art., etc.—might be just what you’re looking for! Fluid art is a form of abstract art that uses acrylic paints with a runny (fluid) consistency. The paints react with each other when combined to make interesting and visually organic motifs. As the paints run amok and spill across your canvas, the possibilities are endless! In this workshop, Deana Murchison will show you several different ways to do acrylic pours. Then, you’ll make two, 8” x 10” abstract paintings using the dirty pour/flip pour method. Finally, Deana will demonstrate how to finish your painting with an acrylic coating. This is a fun and easy class and is great for experimenting with color! For more information, or to register, visit the Purple Crayon website: www.purplecrayonavl.com/workshops.

with Mercy Union, Control Top
To say musician, author and activist Laura Jane Grace has had a defiant career would be the understatement of the year. Whether being accused of leaving the DIY punk scene to pursue a major label career over a decade ago, or courageously challenging people's conceptions of gender identity with a bombshell Rolling Stone article, Grace has remained a daring and influential cultural figure in her over 20+ years of creating dynamic art across various mediums. Sure, shes bound to worry some fans with her decision to press pause on Against Me! to release a more intimate singer-songwriter leaning solo album under the name Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers, but her artistic motivation cast her determination in steel. In the back of my head I was thinking, f**k all of you, Im going to do this anyway,' she says with a smile. With this conviction came liberation, because few expectations equals total freedom. Indeed on the records opening cut, China Beach, Grace delivers a bold, lip-curled statement of intent: Learn to trust yourself, no one else matters / Respect the source and always welcome failure. And its in this spiritwith the help of Against Me! drummer Atom Willard and long-term AM! producer Marc Jacob Hudson on bassthat Bought to Rot, the debut album from Laura Jane Grace & the Devouring Mothers, came into existence.Bought to Rot was written largely in motionon tour, in Spain, Australia, Amsterdam hotel rooms, and some at home in Chicago. Its a record scorched with honesty, unapologetically confessional, capturing many moments snipped from Graces life and stitched together in song. Although its a step and a twist away from Against Me!s sonic blueprint, theres still a kinetic punk energy that vibrates throughout. These compositions are looser, stripped, but with a melodic pop immediacy pushing to the fore. I have my main gig, but Im still doing this thing, she continues. Its undeniable and its really good and heres the proof so what are you going to do with that? Well, it has to go out into the world: via Bloodshot Records, the storied Chicago indie boasting a past & present roster that includes Ryan Adams, Neko Case, Murder by Death, Old 97s and Justin Townes Earle.The seeds of this project were initially sown when Grace, Hudson and Willard introduced the band on a small run of dates in 2016 that included Grace delivering impassioned readings of journal entries between stripped-down Against Me! songs, most of which were featured in her critically acclaimed memoir Tranny: Confessions Of Punk Rocks Most Infamous Anarchist Sellout. Coming off the cycle for Shape Shift With Me, Against Me!s latest full-length studio album, and a North American arena tour with Green Day, Grace was asked to perform a Mountain Goats cover on the podcast Welcome to Night Vale, and it was then that she received a massive sense of renewed momentum overall. With additional songs penned that felt more stand-alone than a proper Against Me! offering, Bought to Rot resulted in 14 gripping tracks detailing Graces fractured relationship with her adopted hometown of Chicago (I Hate Chicago), the act of interpersonal acceptance (The Friendship Song), all-consuming affection until our ultimate demise [Apocalypse Now (& Later)], complicated romance (The Airplane Song), and reconciling everything in the end. As a complete body of work, the album stands as the most musically diverse collection of songs Grace has written to date, and is what she affectionately calls her Scorpio record redolent in sex, drugs, and rock n roll.Additionally inspired in large part by Full Moon Fever, the first album Grace ever owned, Bought to Rot finds her at the same age Tom Petty was when he created his classic solo debut. In light of his recent passing, Grace was even able to pay direct homage to him on the recording. "I bought a '64 Fender Jaguar off Stan Lynch, drummer of the Heartbreakers, and I always like to think that maybe Petty had picked it up and strummed a couple chords on it, she says. I always liked the idea of having my fingers dance on the same fret board as my hero."Theres a refreshing sense of variety present on Bought to Rot, an album that features a vast array of musical textures and lyrics that read like separate short stories throughout. My approach musically to the record was that I wanted it to feel like a mixtape, Grace recently told Rolling Stone. Like OK, youve got this Nirvana-like song, youve got a Cure song. It was musically freeing, in that way, to just be playing whatever was coming to me as I was writing and not having to think about it. As such, I Hate Chicago, a tongue-in-cheek centerpiece to the album that has become a bit of a live favorite to Chicagoans and non-locals alike, finds Grace at her most wry and entertainingly venomous, lambasting the citys sports teams and revered bands, its festivals and its unfriendly denizens over an Americana-angled jaunt.Created at a breakneck pace, Bought to Rot is finally here and ready to be consumed & dissected: to be loved, to be hated. Its an album propelled by a sense of restless, forward motion and the inherent need for Grace to continue evolving as an artist and person the only way she knows how. I dont want to write about these same things anymore, she says. I need some new sources of inspiration. And I dont want to be negative. I want to write some positive, happy songs, and I wanted that to be inspired by positive, happy living, too.

To date, he had released three independent albums, chronicled a German gig in front of 15,000 screaming fans on the recent live opus Songs from the Road, made jaws drop at festivals such as Grandoozy, Firefly, Mountain Jam, Summer Camp, Rock Am Ring, Rock Im Park and Electric Forest, generated millions of streams, launched Andy Frasco’s World Saving Podcast, and performed at festivals alongside icons such as Peter Frampton, Gary Clark Jr., The Revivalists, Snoop Dog, Dr. Dog, Joe Walsh and Kendrick Lamar, to name a few.  After a string of wild shows (and wilder nights) on tour somewhere in the heart of America, one morning sounded a very loud wakeup call for the singer, songwriter, performer, and namesake of Andy Frasco & The U.N. “I woke up after a five-day bender on cocaine,” he recalls. “This relationship I was in didn’t work out. I bought a house in the Midwest to be close to a girl, but she didn’t trust me. I wouldn’t trust me either, because I was fucking chicks and doing drugs every night on the road. I would take ecstasy just to get out of bed. I was sleep deprived, losing all of my friendships, and fucking overworked. I decided to make a change in my life. I realized that I’m getting older; I couldn’t only be the party guy. I wanted to chronicle my life. I wanted to capture my feelings. I wanted substance in my life and music. I decided to take a step back from this wild life for a second and reevaluate, so I could genuinely enjoy the ride I’m on for the long haul.” The ride ramps up on his third full-length album, the aptly titled Change of Pace. Andy approached recording from a new vantage point encouraged by iconic Widespread Panic bassist and producer Dave Schools.  At sessions in a remote Sonoma County mountain studio in a converted chicken coop of all places, Schools challenged him as a songwriter and lyricist. “Dave sat me down and asked, ‘Who do you want to be? What do you want to be remembered by?’,” recalls Andy. “I never really thought of it that way. He dialed things back for me. He’s become a huge inspiration to me as a musician and a friend. The album began there.” Cutting six songs with Dave, he embarked on something of a “studio tour” to finish Change of Pace. He tapped the talents of Ben Ellman in New Orleans, Charles Goodan in Los Angeles, and Caleb Hawley in New York at Lady Gaga’s Atomic Studios.  As a result, the songs reflect the respective regions. “There’s a grungy Bourbon street feel, hard-working and moody New York energy, and that indie California vibe,” he goes on. “I’m a traveler at the end of the day. I became a musician to travel and give people therapy through music. As part of this revelation, I realized I don’t need to stay at home when I’m off tour. I decided since I’m most comfortable on the road, so I might as well make this record on the road.” The first single “Up/Down” slips from a simmering beat and bass line into a horn-driven swoon. Produced by Goodan, its undeniable refrain proves immediately irresistible as he sings, “Your love is up and down.” “I was just getting through my relationship with that girl from Arkansas,” Andy goes on. “One day, she was happy. The next day, she wasn’t. I speak on the bipolar nature of a relationship. This was the first time I felt that. Normally, I’d be in the next town before things got any further. The song came from an outside point-of-a-view by a guy who never had a real relationship before this in his life!” Meanwhile, the boisterous “Waiting Game” features Schools’ touch and thrives on delightful proclamations such as “I wanna be the man you can tell your momma about!” The theatrical piano chords, cinematic accordion, and barroom chant delivery on “Don’t let the Haters get you down” takes dead aim at “online trolls talking shit from their parents basements.”  The title track “Change of Pace” gallops ahead on tambourine and organ as Andy’s voice stretches to the heavens and back on the admission, “I’m looking for change of pace. Then, I’ll be on my way.” “Everyone has an idea of how you should live your life,” he states. “If you’re dealing with something that you’re not into, try something the complete opposite. Instead of always pondering what you could do tomorrow, do it today.” In the end, this change elevates Andy to a new level. “I’d love for people to connect to the songs in addition to the live show,” he leaves off. “I’m a philosopher and a musician at the end of the day. I want to emulate those aspects in my work. I’m also just a guy trying to find happiness like everyone else is. It’s about being okay with the lows, not getting too high with the highs, and being comfortable in your own skin.”  web: http://andyfrasco.comvid: https://youtu.be/lA7kMiLVeMg Hayley Jane and the Primates Hayley Jane & The Primates combine Americana, soul and rock & roll with rich lyrical imagery that electrifies the heart.

At an after party one night we watched a video of The Bands The Last Waltz over a bottle of Knob Creek. It sounded like the dirt I grew up from. That moment musically changed my life. ~ Brent Rupard of Everette Like the great American bands that came before them - new Broken Bow Records duo Everette doesnt follow trends. Instead, the guys of Everette write what they live, weaving gritty tales of struggle and heartbreak alongside fun-loving stories of escapism and mischief. Often their songs are written while touring sometimes during sleepless nights as an odometer tracks the miles or on a day off in a dingy motel room off the beaten path but always organically and always from the heart. Hailing from humble beginnings, Brent Rupard and Anthony Olympia unknowingly went to high school a mere eight miles apart in rural Bullitt County, Kentucky. Brent spent much of his youth on his familys horse farm and even dabbled in barrel racing. Anthonys grandpa was a hall of fame quarter horse trainer and, although their families were friends, the two musicians wouldnt meet until the age of 21 when Brent took a guitar lesson from the classically-trained Anthony. Their friendship and musical chemistry was immediate and the pair soon moved to Bowling Green, KY, where the duo cut its teeth playing originals and covers four nights each week while finishing their degrees at Western Kentucky University. It was the burgeoning Bowling Green music scene that Brent and Anthony credit for shaping them into the songwriters and artists they are today, particularly at a venue called WHA bah.Once we started playing music at WHA bah the crowd wasnt just college kids anymore it was people of all ages and all walks of life. They taught us to how to have a good time and not worry about proving ourselves to anyone. They taught us to be true to ourselves, says Anthony.The two friends moved to Nashville after graduation to chase the dream together. Brent started a solo career. Anthony began working as a musician for hire to pay the bills while still playing in Brents band. Throughout this time the roommates continued to write and record demos together until the day the two collaborators decided to form the duo Everette during a writing session and an American band was born. Named for George Clooneys character in O Brother, Where Art Thou? the duo of Everette is a bonafide triple threat. Brent and Anthony co-write almost all of their songs as well as play many of the instruments on Everettes studio recordings. The two young artists are also co-producing their debut project, an experience Brent calls spiritual and one that is critical to the authenticity of Everettes brand of Country music. We have a certain type of rhythm and we get into a symbiotic zone together in the studio that makes the song work, explains Anthony. We have a mutual respect for each others talent and each others feedback when we disagree. Trying to redo a song in someone elses studio it just isnt the same. Everettes brand of country music is filled with swampy harmonicas and bluesy guitar licks mixed with a knack for melodic hooks not unfamiliar to fans of the 80s and 90s. Citing diverse influences ranging from Tom Petty, The Eagles and Randy Travis to Ray Charles, Michael Jackson and John Mayer, Everettes honest and relatable music exudes a crossover appeal that would have fans singing along at Bonnaroo as well as at CMA Music Fest.Everettes Slow Roll is a rollicking, carefree number inviting the listener to escape from the trappings of city life into an afternoon of leisurely possibility. With a dance-friendly beat and an infectious chorus, Slow Roll showcases the duos clever songwriting abilities, including a nod to pop culture classic Dazed and Confused. Hips will immediately begin swaying to Everettes intoxicating Mugshots. At once dangerous and fun-loving, the duo utilized a steel resonator to add a Tarantino soundtrack vibe to the song. That unique element, paired with the songs arena rock chorus, is sure to make Mugshots the universal anthem of wild summer nights.The duo switches gears with the dark and gritty Relapse which showcases an intensity and depth to the young artists songwriting abilities. Everette credits the magic of the heart-wrenching lament to writing it while on the road without time limitations or constraints. Everette often describes its brand as bonfire music because of its communal nature, which relates directly to the Country music genre. Its the same thing we love about Country music and Country radio, says Brent. Just like everyones involved at a bonfire jam, says Anthony. When were on stage we dont want any separation between us and the audience. We want our shows to be an experience. We write songs about us, but theyre really about everyone.

Description:

With all the chest-thumping going on in Nashville today, where bluster and swagger have replaced heart and soul, you half expect some of country music’s male stars to be sporting bruises. Which is what makes Midland, a trio of friends based in Dripping Springs, Texas, so undeniably refreshing. Made up of singer Mark Wystrach, lead guitarist Jess Carson and bass player Cameron Duddy, Midland is the embodiment of Seventies California country, all smooth Eagles harmonies and heart-on-your-sleeve lyrics. Their songs are intoxicating, sung with the twang of George Strait.

And it’s impossible to resist.

Now, after endearing themselves to fans with the hit radio single “Drinkin’ Problem” and a self-titled EP, Midland unveil their full-length debut, On the Rocks(Big Machine Records).

A collection of 13 tracks all written or co-written by Midland –the guys took their name from a Dwight Yoakam song –On the Rocks excels at setting a mood, transporting the listener to another place and time. It’s an albummade for wide-open skies, endless deserts and wondering where the road is going to take you next.

“Drinkin’ Problem,” written with Shane McAnally and Josh Osborne, who produced the album with Dann Huff, reclaims the drinking song for classic country music, making it less about an endless party and more about self-medicating. “They call it a problem, I call it a solution / just sitting here with all my grand illusions,” sings Wystrach, evoking the best booze ballads of both Gary Stewart and Merle Haggard, two of the trio’s chief influences.

“Make a Little,” a rollicking ditty, is more optimistic, soaring with the brotherly harmonies of Wystrach, Duddy and Carson and a timely message: “There’s just not enough love in the world.” The rapid-fire lyrics embody the clever wordplay that is unique to country music –”we should make a little, generate a little / maybe even make the world a better place a little” –and also nod to Alabama, another country band that helped spark a revolution in the genre.

Midland hearken back to a time when an artist’s personal style –colorful suits, tailored denim and well-worn hats –dovetailed with the music. And they tip their hats to other groundbreaking artists throughout On the Rocks.

The kick-back and get-high ode”Altitude Adjustment” name-checks John Denver, the majestic “Nothin’ New Under the Neon” sounds like vintage Eddie Rabbit, and the glorious “At Least You Cried” channels Dwight Yoakam. By album’s end, the band returns to the Eagles, recalling their famous intro to”Seven Bridges Road,” with the closing “Somewhere on the Wind.”

“On the Rocks is a confluence of our musical tastes and our reverence for classic country,” says Duddy, whose wife, photographer Harper Smith, shoots all of the group’s stylish photos.

“This record is truly a nod to the time period we are influenced by,” says Carson, a Pacific Northwest native, “and is an effort to bring that sound and that pageantry back to the forefront.”

“We write with a very visual storytelling approach. We paint that big picture and go to that place,” says Wystrach. “Where is this story going? Let’s paint it.”

“Electric Rodeo,” with its plaintive piano, sweeping strings and high-in-the-saddle chorus, is a prime example of the “picture” the band talks about creating. And “Check Cashin’ Country,” a solo composition by Carson, stands as the band’s true-life road diary: the tale of a country-rock band trying to find time to sleep as they hustle from gig to gig, barely making enough moneyto put gas in the tank. It’s the country equivalent of Seger’s “On the Road.”

Midland first came together at Duddy’s wedding in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where the three members ended up jamming onstage at the rehearsal dinner.

“It was this serendipitou schain of events, and it was the best week ever,” says Wystrach, who, despite his hippie persona, was actually raised on an Arizona cattle ranch. “By the end, we knew the three of us had amazing chemistry.”

“Midland isn’t manufactured,” says Duddy, born in California. “We are three real friends who stumbled upon making music together.”

Whether they intended it or not, Midland are filling a void in country,with songs that run the gamut from lush Urban Cowboy anthems to loose campfire sing-alongs. Putting their own spin on a classic sound, they’re making something old relevant again.

“We are a band,” says Carson, declaratively. “That’s a big part of the spirit of what we do, that group experience and camaraderie.”

Says Wystrach, “We’ve poured our hearts and souls into writing and making these songs and are extremely proud of what we’ve been able to create.”

With On the Rocks, Midland have captured a sound decades in the making that is just right for today.
